Highly anticipated on Springfield Armory website and social media, finally The SAINT in 5,56x45 (.223 Remington) caliber has finally arrived on the shelves of american gun shops.

The SAINT’s flat top design is optics ready and the package includes a flip-up rear aperture sight and fixed A2-style front. The 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel features a 1:8 twist rate to handle a wide range of bullet types. The operation of the M16 bolt carrier group is managed by a mid-length gas system paired with a heavy tungsten buffer, resulting in an exceptionally smooth action. 

A good shot starts with the trigger, so that’s why the SAINT features micro-polished and Nickel Boron treated components. While it offers the right pull weight for defensive use, you won’t feel it.

Unlike most defensive rifles in its price range, the SAINT includes top notch furniture designed to improve both shooting experience and operator performance. An all new, exclusive Bravo Company PKMT KeyMod handguard packs heat shields and flexible attachment points into a slim and easy to handle form factor. The Bravo Company buttstock is rattle-free and complemented by a Bravo pistol grip designed to improve defensive performance. SAINT is currently available only in 5,56x45 caliber, but the mark “multicaliber” on the left side of the receiver suggests that other chamberings are on the way. Retail price is 899 USD.
